The UCR Library collects resources in the field of electrical engineering supporting both coursework and research conducted by our students and faculty. We offer subject-specific and general research educational services at the library and provide access to information from the UC Libraries System and beyond, including complete online access to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Xplore Digital Library.

Conducting Research

Books & Articles

Books are useful for getting a broad introduction or background information to topics in electrical engineering. Search by topic keywords in the UCR catalog or the Melvyl (UC) catalog.

Scholarly articles are carefully evaluated (peer-reviewed) by subject experts to provide reliable and credible information. Locate research articles in the electrical engineering databases, or by using Inspec and Google Scholar.


Most electrical engineering journals are purchased for the entire UC Libraries system and can be browsed in in the UC Journal Finder.  Use the UCR catalog to find journals on campus.
